Thursday, January 22, 2015 - 7:00pm

This event will be held at our Clement street location. 


Please join Green Apple Books on Clement as we welcome Joshua Safran as he discusses his new book Free Spirit: Growing Up On the Road and Off the Grid at 7:00 p.m. 


Joshua Safran is an author, attorney, and nationally recognized advocate for survivors of domestic violence and the wrongfully imprisoned. He is the subject of the award-winning documentary CRIME AFTER CRIME which premiered at Sundance and on the Oprah Winfrey Network. His critically-acclaimed new memoir, FREE SPIRIT: Growing Up On the Road and Off the Grid, published by Hachette, has been compared to the best work of David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs. Safran was born to a coven of lesbian witches in a Haight-Ashbury commune, spent his childhood hitchhiking and surviving the elements and a violent alcoholic stepfather from El Salvador, and, against all odds, found his way to law school. Safran’s inspirational story has been heard around the world on the BBC, NPR, PBS, CBS, FOX News, and Authors@Google. His essays have appeared in Salon, Huffington Post and The Daily Beast. Joshua lives in the Bay Area with his wife and three daughters.
